Israel As Fountainhead Of World Terrorism: A Chronological Record Of Its Terrorist Activities

| |





[Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always perturbed the civil society in India, and particularly Indian Muslims remain concerned about this as ever. Shamshul Islam, Reader in political science in a Delhi University college, has compiled a chronological record of Israel’s terrorist activities, which is an excellent and valuable scholarly compilation. However, I believe that more than Israel and the US, it is Fatah and Hamas who are responsible for the sufferings of the Palestinian people. Readers are requested to go through this interesting posting and are welcome to send their comments.]

THE ISRAELI-Hamas conflict and horrendous killings in Gaza Strip has drawn massive worldwide protests, and this includes protests in Israel too. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always perturbed the civil society in India, and Indian Muslims particularly continue to remain concerned about this. Muslims in Hyderabad, Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and other places in the country staged demonstrations calling immediate halt to merciless killings inflicted upon women, children and other residents of Gaza.

After three-week-long air and ground offensive by the Israeli army in Gaza, a unilateral ceasefire came into effect on 18 January 2009 with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announcing that troops would stop fighting. The Hamas movement, against whom this operation was directed, however said that it would not respect any ceasefire so long as Israeli troops remained in the Gaza Strip.

This truce, which is undoubtedly a temporary one, is being again seen as yet another lull before the storm. But, after all, who is responsible for this? The entire world accuses Israel of indulging in war crimes against the helpless Palestinian people, and its godfather United States collaborating in these crimes. However, to me, it is not only Israel and US alone, but also Fatah-Hamas duo that are greatly responsible for the sufferings of their own Palestinian people. In fact, sometimes it seems as though Fatah and Hamas are both playing into the hands of Israel and US.

The genesis of the Israeli bombardment in Gaza lies in the ongoing Fatah-Hamas conflict, also referred to as the Palestinian Civil War. The conflict is called ‘Wakseh’ among Palestinians, meaning humiliation, ruin, and collapse as a result of self-inflicted damage. This Conflict of Brothers began in 2006 and has continued, in one form or another, into 2009. The majority of the fighting is occurring in the Gaza Strip where fighting began after Hamas’ legislative victories. Hamas remains in control of the Gaza Strip. The tensions between Hamas and Fatah began to rise in 2005 after the death of longtime PLO leader Yasser Arafat who died on 11 November 2004, and intensified after Hamas won a majority in the Palestinian National Authority elections of January 2006. In his nationally televised speech on 21 June 2008, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas denounced Hamas’ leaders as “murderous terrorists” who had carried out a “coup” in the Gaza Strip. President Abbas dismissed the 3-month-old “national unity” government headed by PM Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, outlawed Hamas affiliated militias and appointed an “emergency” government led by former World Bank economist Salam Fayyad. Hamas has since refused to recognise the legitimacy of the Abbas’s appointed emergency government.

Israel, the US and the European Union, which had previously demanded a popularly elected PA government, responded to Hamas’s 2006 election win by imposing a crippling financial embargo on the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories. US President George Bush accused Hamas of “assaulting” Palestinian democracy, and lifted the financial embargo only after President Abbas dismissed Haniyeh-led government. Israel has been working relentlessly to deepen the rift between Hamas and Fateh. This is very much obvious as seen in the recent killings in Hamas-dominated Gaza Strip and sparing Fatah-dominated West Bank. Israel has also worked very hard to weaken Fatah and President Abbas by undermining their credibility by not honouring the promises it made to them. Israel used the Oslo accords and the “peace process” to divide Palestinians. President Abbas rejects the armed nature of the intifada and adamantly supports popular and peaceful resistance and political negotiations to achieve Palestinian national rights. On the contrary, Hamas continues to call for the destruction of the State of Israel. This conflict of interests between Fatah and Hamas has subsequently weakened the Palestinian national movement. The power mongering by both the parties in controlling the Palestinian enclaves West Bank and Gaza Strip individually has only inflicted a severe blow on the psyche of Palestinian people and thereby leading to incessant bloodshed and brutalities being inflicted by the Israeli army. The actions of both Hamas and Fatah have only buttressed the Israeli expansionist policy and extending its continued occupation of Palestinian territories forever. Why can’t one believe that under the circumstances Hamas and Fatah are increasingly acting as mere pawns in the hands of Israel and US. Israel wants a Palestinian Authority with authority only to control its people rather than any land and that it continues to act as Israel’s policeman. Fatah and Hamas need to see through this Israeli design and join hands to strengthen the Palestinian national movement and allay the sufferings of their people.

The world governments and civil society cannot remain oblivious and mute spectators of the holocaust being inflicted on the Palestinian people. Former US president Jimmy Carter in a June 19 speech at a human rights conference in Dublin also criticised Bush’s policy toward Hamas, saying Washington’s refusal to accept the outcome of the “free and fair” January 2006 Palestinian Legislative Council election was “criminal”. Carter said, “The United States and Israel decided to punish all the people in Palestine and did everything they could to deter a compromise between Hamas and Fatah.” Even former national unity government information minister Mustafa Barghouti in an interview with the Australian Lateline TV program on June 19 observed that the division of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) between a Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and a Fatah-controlled West Bank “serves exactly the Israeli interests of imposing their own reality on the ground which we see through the building of the [separation] wall, the expansion of settlements and transforming the Palestinian entity into clusters of prison-like ghettos. If the Israelis want to empower Mr Abbas really, they will declare they are ready to end occupation, stop building the wall, stop settlements building, announce they are ready to allow East Jerusalem to be the capital of Palestinian state and then Mr Abbas will be the hero of all Palestinians.” He went onto say that this would not happen because the Israeli plan for the PA “is only a limited self-governing government that has control on people but not on land, not on water, not with sovereignty” and that Tel Aviv wants a PA regime that will “suppress its own people on behalf of the Israelis, some kind of a security sub-agent for the Israeli side. That was the dream of Israelis when they signed Oslo… The problem remains the same. The cause of all what we see today is this Israeli military occupation, which has been here for 40 years, longer than any other occupation in modern history.”

Israel As Fountainhead Of World Terrorism: A Chronological Record Of Its Terrorist Activities

Israel, a Zionist theocratic state is the real harbinger of the modern terrorism, is a fact known to the whole civilized world, specially the people of Palestine, who have been at the receiving end of the Zionist terror-network for more than 6 decades. Israel as a state was forced on the peace-loving people of Palestine in 1948 but long before it the Zionist terrorist groups had been blasting buildings, burning villages and killing people. The Zionist terrorist gangs were not targeting only Palestinians both Muslims and Christians and their properties but also UNO officials and its offices in the West Asia who were there to supervise peace. Today Israel and its patron in barbarism; USA (and its lackeys) and United Nations itself may be oblivious of this reality but here are reproduced two sets of UNO documents, which long back underlined the fact that Israel and Zionist gangs are the fountain-head of modern day terrorism.

The first document was prepared by a UN Committee and released on October 1, 1948. It was prepared for Mr. Ralphe Bunche, New UN Commissioner to Palestine who assumed charge after the tragic assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte by identified Jewish terrorists on September 17, 1948.

The foreword of the report said:
"This report is a compilation of all identified terrorist attacks on British, American and Arab individuals and entities in the assassination of the British Resident Minister in the Middle East on November 6, 1944 by members of the terrorist Jewish Stern gang to the assassination of Count Bernadotte on September 17, 1948 by members of this same gang of fanatics.

This information is compiled from reports of the US Department of State, the British Foreign Office and various American and British press services."

This report listed 167 major terrorist acts indulged by the Zionist gangs between 1944 and 1948, not only in West Asia but in Europe also.

Also killed in the attack was French Col. Andre Serot, chief of France's 100-man contingent in the unarmed UN truce-observer team.

UNO Resolutions Aganst Israeli Terror
The Zionist terrorism continued unabated with the establishment of the theocratic state of Israel. This continued despite condemnation by the UNO and world community except USA. From 1967 to 1989 the UN Security Council passed 88 resolutions in which actions of Israel were either "condemned," "censured," or "deplored". During the same period the UN General Assembly passed 429 resolutions against Israel were passed and this totalitarian state was openly condemned 321 times. It is to be noted here that about 50 resolutions condemning Israel were aborted as USA vetoed the same. Israel ignored every single resolution. The number of resolutions criticizing or condemning Israel is unmatched by the record of any other nation.
